Peaceful Kensington Guest House

Located in: San Diego

ALSO, please do not run air conditioner when not in the guest house. When you do run it, please make sure all windows are closed. When you go out, please make sure AC is OFF. You are welcome to open windows and to keep a fan running. Violation of this rule may result in a deduction of at least $100 from your security deposit, and the entire deposit may be forfeited if there is more than one violation. There is also NO SMOKING inside the guest house. A single violation may result in a $100 deduction and if there are repeated violations or damage, the entire security deposit will be forfeited. Fortunately, I have never deducted from anyone's deposit but please observe these important rules!

There are two (2) steps into the guest house.

My guest house is a 400 sf studio with bamboo flooring, high ceilings. Cal.King bed, kitchenette (sink, two fridges, coffee toaster, microwave, induction hot plate); 3/4 bath (shower) with stability grab bar. You will have your own entrance, and the A/C and heat are controlled independently of the main house. There is a collapsible desk and chairs for work space or in-room snacking. There is wifi access and a TV with streaming content including live tv on PS Vue. There is a HUGE DVD movie library for your viewing. Maximum occupancy is 2 adults.

This guest house is private and not visible from the street. The yard, which is shared with the main house, has 10 foot high hedges and a lovely garden with Adirondack chairs or sun lounge chairs. Weather permitting, enjoy the patio with lounging sofas and chairs, or have a snack outdoors at the umbrella-shaded dining table. An outdoor gas grill may be available for use. Unfortunately, I do not offer access to the main house or laundry, but there is a laundromat within a couple of miles on Adams Avenue.

I try to provide a guest experience that makes everything easy for the guests. I provide plenty of clean towels (beach towels in summer or on request), paper towels, napkins, dish detergent (hand washing only), toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, soap. I also keep the guest house stocked with other toiletry items including extra toothbrushes and sunblock. I also leave my guests coffee, water and some snacks.

Beautiful neighborhood, mostly developed in the 1920s and 1940s. Flat, walkable streets with lovely homes. Walk to small business district (about 15 minutes) with restaurants, wine bars, brewery, ice cream parlor, independent movie theater, pilates/yoga studio, dry cleaners, Starbucks, pet supply store, upscale grocery (Stehley Farms). About 1 mile to Von's grocery and Rite Aid pharmacy.

Kensington is close to other interesting neighborhoods, such as North Park, Normal Heights and Hillcrest. It is immediately off the 15 freeway.

I will consider house trained, non-destructive dogs that are not habitual barkers and that do not have separation anxiety. If you wish to bring a dog, you must message me before booking and let me know your dog's breed, age, whether neutered, temperament. All dog guests must be current on vaccinations and must not have fleas. If dogs bring fleas into the guest house, there will be a $100 fee for fumigation after you leave. So far, I have never had to invoke this provision. When guests bring dogs, I try to make the guest house dog friendly and include doggie poop bags, Nature's Miracle (in the rare case of an accident), and a comforter or throw to use as a doggie bed. I have a young neutered Westie living on premises, so approved doggie guests must be well socialized, OR kept in the guest house or otherwise secured at all times. Large dogs that have a strong "prey" instinct toward small dogs are not suitable guests. However, we have hosted many large and wonderfully socialized dogs.

Restaurants on Adams include Pappalecco (rustic pizzeria with amazing housemade gelato), Ponce's (family-owned Mexican comfort food - watch out for the margaritas!), Bleu Boheme (excellent French country cuisine), Cucina Sorella (innovative cuisine with eclectic gift shop), Clem's Tap House (brewery), Kensington Café (popular for brunch), Burger Lounge (burgers), The Haven (pizzeria and more), Clem's Liquor (deli counter and largest collection of bottled beers I have ever seen), Vino Volo (wine bar). Also on Adams are the Ken Theater (independent and revival films, excellent fresh popcorn), Moosie's (ice creamery), Bubbles and Babes (pets), Zen Sanctuary (day spa), a pilates and yoga studio, Stehly Farms (an upscale grocery store with deli) and of course, Starbucks.

This is a quiet residential neighborhood, so please keep noise levels consistent with that of the neighborhood. No smoking or burning of any materials at any time inside the guest house. You will forfeit your entire deposit if you have smoked in the guest house. No parties in the guest house.

The house is about a 0.2 mile walk to a city bus line. It is within 10-20 minutes of all major San Diego attractions and neighborhoods, including beaches, retail shopping, live music and theater, universities, the Zoo, Balboa Park and much more. It's about 1/2 hour to the Mexican border. If you have questions about the house's proximity to something you are interested in, just ask.
